Why does cancer need to be treated

Malignant tumor form from the uncontrolled division of atypical cells that are able to penetrate nearby tissues and metastasize to distant organs. The causes of mutation can be viruses, food-borne carcinogens, harmful lifestyle choices, hereditary factors, etc. From the moment of transformation, these cells are alien to the body.

Operative Oncology

If these cells are not destroyed by the immune system, they will begin to divide, affecting more and more tissue around them. The resulting quantity of tumorous cells becomes so large that the immune system is unable to handle them, and the development of the malignant process becomes catastrophic in nature. The tumor starts to produce metastases, which spread through the lymphatic and blood vessels to all organs and systems and begin to form secondary tumors.

Without proper treatment, there is not only the risk of serious complications, but also death. Modern oncology offers a wide range of conservative and operative methods that allow doctors to treat cancer at all stages of development. But it should be kept in mind that the early diagnosis and treatment of malignant tumors is the only chance patients have for a full recovery.

When you should speak to a specialist

It is a well-known fact that cancer is a very tricky disease, able to disguise itself as other pathologies. We have seen cases where a patient comes in for a consultation with complaints of appetite loss, and tests reveal the final stages of stomach cancer. Therefore, be sure to listen to your body and pay attention to signs that may indicate the development of a disease:

  • persistent heartburn, nausea, vomiting;
  • difficulty swallowing;
  • pain, abdominal discomfort, flatulence;
  • unexplained weight loss;
  • weakness, fatigue;
  • anemia;
  • stool disorders (frequent constipation, diarrhea, fecal abnormalities);
  • frequent headaches;
  • yellowing of the eyes and skin;
  • skin irritation;
  • rectal bleeding;
  • asymmetry, deformation, or changes in the shape of the breast;
  • impaired urination;
  • blood in the urine;
  • any hardened lumps on the body;
  • swollen lymph nodes.

This is far from a complete list of symptoms that could indicate the presence of cancer. There are many other signs that suggest a visit to a specialist is in order. All people over the age of 40 should see an oncologist once every two years. And if you have a family history of oncological disease, you should check your health once a year.
